Are There More Mosquitoes This year?


Mosquito counts at this time are higher than they have been during the past five years of drought in Contra Costa County. The drought produced fewer mosquitoes, but greater virus potential.

This year there are plenty of water sources. Those, coupled with the hot weather, make the perfect opportunity for many more mosquitoes. The best we can all do is three-fold: 1) don’t breed mosquitoes on our own properties, 2) wear mosquito repellent when needed, and 3) report mosquito sources and mosquitoes to our District.
